Competitors

The Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 3 tire strikes a remarkable balance across a broad range of conditions, showcasing a versatility that is highly praised in numerous reviews from industry-leading organizations. Its positive attributes span across all weather conditions, offering convincing driving characteristics no matter the weather, coupled with very good safety reserves against aquaplaning and a dynamic handling in wet conditions. The tire's robust winter capabilities are consistently noted, alongside short braking distances and high mileage durability, cementing its status as a premium profile tire with commendable winter performance.


Comfort is another hallmark of the UltraGrip Performance 3, receiving commendations for its pleasant ride. In the realm of safety and reliability, it shines with very secure driving behavior on snow, impressive cornering grip with ample reserves, and steadfast reliability and driving stability on wet surfaces. Its performance on dry roads also deserves mention, characterized by precise and safe handling, further emphasizing its all-around competence.


However, the tire is not without its critiques. An elevated rolling resistance is a recurring point of criticism across different test dimensions, suggesting a potential compromise in fuel efficiency. Additionally, while its performance in aquaplaning scenarios is generally strong, some tests pointed out slight deficits in cornering aquaplaning and steering precision coupled with a slight susceptibility to sudden changes in direction during fast, dry cornering.


Noteworthy is its exceptional capability in snow, as highlighted by one review, which underscores its excellent snow handling, contradicting the tire's slightly lower ranking in another test focused on snow performance. Despite this, it remains competitive, even in less favorable conditions.


In summary, the Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 3 emerges as a highly competent and reliable choice for a wide spectrum of driving conditions. Its strengths in safety, comfort, and overall performance across different terrains make it a commendable option for drivers seeking a tire that excels in versatility. The mentioned drawbacks, such as rolling resistance and minor handling quirks under specific scenarios, do little to overshadow the tire’s substantial merits, presenting it as a well-rounded contender in the winter tire segment.
